Song for Janis




Blues angel, fallen star
Gone before we know all that you are
You blazed a path where none could follow
Rest your head tonight

Texas beauty, voice of light
you shook the shadows in the heart of night
I feel you now in a Hollywood daze
Rest your head tonight

chasing Fortune, Lady Chance
in the chaos, you found a way to dance
please take these words until you find a home
Rest your head tonight

mother’s calling, father’s gone
all that music seems to carry on
bury now the pain that cuts deep
Rest your head tonight

burning brilliant Hope against the dark
you tread these highways and left us your mark
as an offering I leave you this song
Rest your head tonight

(From the album "misfit hymns")
